Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a Compaq Presario V5201US Notebook PC I bought 18 months ago. Today when booted up, it only shows the top 3 inches of screen, the rest is a colored blur. It blinked about a week ago like this, and I backed up all my files from it. What can I do?

My PC won't start? every time i start it the fan just spins fast and loud and nothing happens, the screen doesn't show. this happened when i took the PC apart. it a Compaq presario sr1610nx


Initially test the monitor in another pc, if display available use the monitor in Compaq presario sr1610nx. Load to BIOS by restarting and tapping F1, if the display available, the computer is ok. restart and tap F8, if the advanced boot option screen comes up, the software is ok.
Restart the computer and tap F10 and proceed with a destructive recovery to reload the operating system on the computer

Sounds like your hard drive maybe had it. Try to do a repair with your windows disc.

Bootsafe error on hp compaq notebook notebook pc while booting


Boot from the XP disc and press R at the first screen. This takes you into Recovery Console. Run these commands:

fixboot c:
fixmbr
exit

The computer will restart and hopefully it will load Windows.

If not, is your computer making clicking sounds?

Just bought a compac presario w/ windows vista two days ago. Today the screen is white, nothing else. Any answers?


the operating system has frozen during its boot process, restart the computer, after post screen hit F8 a few times, you will get a sub-menu, chose "last known good configeration" and press enter, hopefully the system will re-boot into vista
get back to me if this does not work

good luck

Compaq presario 5000 startup problem


Firstly the keyboard does blink, but do you hear 2 beeps one then another a few seconds later, if not memory or graphics fault. Are you able to start in safe mode(press F8 when pc is booting up)when menu comes up highlight 'Start windows with last known good configuration' then press enter and it should re boot. The graphics card(if it's not onboard)may need to be removed and re seated, also the memory. Also check hard disk drive ide and power cable.
